Bugle: In Black & White

Canon 60D, 100-400, F5.6, ISO 800, 1/20th

Seldom do I find B&W wildlife images as appealing as color.  However with this image of a mature bull roaring out a challenge it seemed a perfect fit. 

As did this image of a bull and cow silhouetted on a ridge top.  The action here was quite fluid and fast moving.  I am still kicking myself in the butt for cutting the cow's head off just below the eyes.  But it is what it is and I love the raw power captured in the image.

We have all been photographing in colour for so long that we have almost forgotten about the character that the B&W is able to bring forth. Thank you, these are rally beautiful.
